The morning began with an excursion to Saint-Remy de Provence to visit the asylum of St Paul de Mausole where Vincent Van Gogh had lived from 1889-1890. But first the bus visited an olive farm where the processes of growing olives and preparing olive oil were explained.

On the way back to the ship we drove past the village of Les Baux de Provence set on top of a rocky outcrop in the Alpilles mountains.
